THE NINETEEN THIRTY -EIGHT PINE KNOT The Purpose of the Pine Knot is to provide fond moments of relaxation in later years to former students at Atlantic Christ- ian College. It gives one a great thrill to turn the pages and gaze upon friends that are almost for- gotten. When time has wrinkled our faces and dimmed our eyes, we can dream of the happy moments spent on the campus. With this purpose in mind, we, the staff, sin- cerely hope the students enjoy keeping this annual as much as we have enjoyed giving it to them. 23708 WE HONOR Professor Frederick F. Grim as an expression of high regard; in appreciation of his abiding in- terest in the students through the years; for his wise counsel and enduring friendship; for his un- failing stand for fair dealing and justice; for his steadfast loyalty to our Alma Mater, the Pine Knot for 1938 is respectfully dedicated to Prof. Frederick F. Grim. INTRO- DUCTION In Presenting this annual to you the staff feels sure that it will be one of the best that you have received. Our sincere desire has been to turn out a fine book and our efforts have been un- failing in trying to do so. May our efforts not have been in vain. THROUGH THE YEARS '\£% ,, As the shades fall over the close of the 36th year in the history of Atlantic Christian Col- lege another senior class leaves the narrow channel of education and goes forth into the broad ocean of life. But we take with us mem- ories, memories of friends and happy times which will never be dimmed by the passing years. Through the years that have gone we have followed the guiding hand of those who already know the problems of life. Some- times the guiding hand seemed out of place ,\TLANTIC CHRISTIAN COLLEGE but never once did it stray from the path of understanding. There were times when our problems seemed too great to bear. The world seemed to be only a friendless and empty chaos. Again the guiding hand stretched forth and brought us back to understanding. And now as we are about to step forth into life we are happy and yet we feel sad as we look back and think about the members, who entered with us as freshmen, that are gone. Some of these members stopped school, others transferred to other schools, but death took one of our mem- bers. This member was William Tyre, a boy who always smiled no matter how dark the future seemed. He always had a word of cheer and everyone loved him. Everyone was saddened by his death and we could not understand why one so good should be taken from us but now we seem to understand for William is not dead, he is only resting and gaining strength for a new life. He is now smiling and spreading cheer in a better world. He is enjoying what we all long for; Peace Solitude. Four years ago we entered Atlantic Christian College as boys and girls but as we leave we are no longer boys and girls, we are men and women. We only asked that the world gives us a chance to prove that we are men and women and are capable of playing that part. BOOK ONE THE personnel of this college are the ones who have taken part in making this year the greatest year in the his- tory of the college. The entire per- sonnel of the college has cooperated as a unit rather than as individuals. PERSONNEL THE Howard S.

We bid you adieu and may your years at Atlantic Christian Col- lege be as happy as ours have been. THE 1938 PINE KNOT Dare Barnhill stokes, n. c.

A. Jin fHpmnnam William Tyre entered Atlantic Christian College in the year nineteen hundred and thirty- four. He was only one among many others who had entered as freshmen. William immediately became loved because of his good cheer and ever willingness to help his fellowman. He was never content when his work was finished because he wanted to help someone who could not do his task. One day William was taken from us. The same old sun rose, but it did not seem as bright and that night the same old stars twinkled, but they did not seem as sincere. William was dead. Although he has gone his memory will live on with us. In the great sky above; A new star twinkles tonight. It has a place among many others, But it gives forth a brighter light. Oh! God, help us to be like our friend, Faithful and true until the end. And when You beckon for us to come. May we leave also, with a task well done. Page Nineteen THE 1938 PINE KNOT The Junior Class Cleveland Bradner President Martha Nelson Vice-President Woodrow Sugg Secretary Eugene Ogrodowski Treasurer As this year ends, we the Juniors prepare to achieve the greatest and final level of our college career. After three years of hard struggle, which have seen our number diminished, we now are able to claim the name of Seniors. Our three years have been years of joy and happi- ness. We have gone through the change from adolescence to manhood and womanhood. It has at times been a long and painful process, but under the capable guidance of our beloved leaders we have come through with colors flying. We have been fortunate in our choice of leaders in the past and have benefited greatly through their superior ability. As we make our final step, we leave behind our childish things and look forward to the bright horizon of graduation and travel onward undaunted. Page Twenty ATLANTIC CHRISTIAN COLLEGE Beulah P.

Hilley Secretary Robert Windham Treasurer We arrived two years ago, a group of green freshmen. Last year was spent in becoming accustomed to college life and its new relation- ships and responsibilities. As we returned to school last fall we became the typical swaggering Sophomores. We were coming back to a place already our home, and we were thrilled at the greetings of classmates. Our Sophomore year, however, has not been an easy one. Reality at last caught us and left in its wake a plain of shattered ideals and fantasies. Our lives have been softened, and we have learned the lesson of strength and fortitude. Now we are ready to enter our Junior year with a sense of con- fidence and responsibility that has become ours from our experiences.

Ath- letics are not only good for recreation but they create in a person the idea of fair play, good sportsmanship, and the desire to win. Also clean and healthful habits of living are de- veloped in persons participating in various sports. Athletics are a vital part of every college and everyone should cooperate in helping turn out winning teams. ATHLETICS THE 1938 PINE KNOT Basketball The team of 1937-38 was captained by James "Red" Rogers, a Junior, from Rose Hill, N. C. Although, not having a verv successful season, the team was noted for its remarkable fighting spirit. Onnie Cockrell was the only mem- ber of the squad to graduate. With the rest of the lettermen back, next year, Coach A. D. "Bud" Rose should have a faster and more experienced team. The high scorer of the 1937-38 team was Warren "Red" Broughton who scored 157 points. May the Bulldogs have a very successful season next year. We are all backing you.

The boxing team enjoyed a very success- ful season and with all the lettermen back next year the team should again experience a successful season. Here's luck to you pugs and may you again bring home the bacon. The highlight of the last bout was the battle between C. B. Johnson of A. C. C. and Breece of E. C. T. C.

May Day always attracts a large number of spectators. They come from far and near to watch the beautifully colored costumes and the graceful dancers. Both costumes and dances are derived from the folk dances and cos- tumes of European peasants. It is a beautiful sight to see the sun bring out the colors of the costumes. Blue, grey, red and white all seem to blend into one color with the green grass as a background. After the dances have been completed, the King and Queen are crowned. After this, the May Pole dance takes place and then May Day is only a fond memory until next May. The college band plays while the King and Queen and all the performers march out and take their places. Everyone looks forward to May Day. It serves to give a better appreciation to the old music and dances. Page Sixty-two A D V E R T I S E M E N T S BEULAH: The horn on your car must be broken. MILLARD: No, it's just indifferent.
